Undertaking


Hearse

Recommended Posts

We all know each Transformer has a function... Hound is a scout, Goldbug is an Espionage Director, etc...but has onyone actually made/drawn out the ranking hiarchy for the Autobots 'n' Decepticons?

 

I hope not, cuz I wanna make one...and already am...I'm halfway-ish through the Autobots' rough draft...

 

Of course it's not official, and there will be hiccups (Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime)....but who knows what this ranking tree'll look like...

 

Anyway, I'll post the Autobots' hiarchy asap

 

Wish me melodramatic luck!

I tried that once with the TF Action Cards and tech specs. Prowl was like 2nd or 3rd in command - I can't remember. Too bad he sucked bad in the show and died in the movie :tdown

 

edit: When two bots had the same Rank - I would also factor in Intelligents and Skill to make the choice.

I've actually done it already. They are very top heavy. One of the problems was organizing the micromasters. how much clout do you give the Patrol Commanders? I've got the Autobots all finished. I'll post this weekend. Maybe you can finish the deceps.

 

I actually didn't use tech spec ranks but common sense based on their functions. Maybe you could use ranks. It would be interesting to see how they line up.

That's what I've noticed too...not a whole lot of 'warriors'...

 

Sub-groups, like combiners, are getting their own 'division'...I'm omitting Micromasters, since they could just be their own wing under Countdown's command....

 

Lotsa friggin' spies.

 

I dunno...just gives me an excuse to do something rediculously nerdy.

the problem with the transformers in general (when it came to ranks) is they could never decide if spying played any praticalur role in the transformers universe.

 

e.g. in the first episode of G1 'the rebirth part 1', punch must have been the most in-effective double agent in the universe, instead of being with the decepticons, in order to warn the autobots of galvatron's attack, he was with the autobots,. even then he only spied, for all of two seconds,on wingspan and pounce WTF?

 

and as to the combiners being a devision to themselves was rediculus, instead they should have had the devisions like this:

 

e.g. the combaticons

 

commander: Onslaught

 

special team: the combaticons themselves.

 

with atleast 5 other warriors all under the command of the combaticon leader, thus giving the idea of squads/devisions more creditbillity.

 

The best example in the transformer universe of Devisions/squads are 'The Wreakers' and 'the mayhem attack squad' (both comic continuarity)

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
